It is very unusual for us at WhatDoTheyKnow to decide not to publish
a substantive response to a Freedom of Information request due to
defamation concerns. There have only been two such cases in over half
a million requests which we've handled, both cases involved matters
which were potentially of substantial public interest.

While we at WhatDoTheyKnow are not currently prepared to publish the
council's response due to risks arising from the state of defamation
law we are prepared to make the material available to journalists, and
will consider requests from others such as elected representatives,
and regulators.

We have advertised the fact we are holding this material and have
proactively approached relevant journalists. We understand a number of
journalists are considering the matter.
